According to Dante, demons fart in hell. I wonder if there is not, perhaps, a higher form of farting experienced by the saints in the New Jerusalem? I don't mean to suggest that mankind should have to fart in heaven to relieve pressure or to prevent discomfort, and I certainly don't mean to imply such farting might result in any kind of embarrassment or distress. I simply mean, why should not the saints be able to fart for the shear joy of farting offered up in praise to God on High? St. Augustine himself speaks of a man he once knew who had such control of his bowels as to affect the sound of singing. Why could not a chorus of the faithful offer up a song of praise in just such a mode to a laughing and delighted God?
